VW steps up production of e-Golf due to high demand


Carmaker VW will significantly step up the production of the electric version of its trademark Golf model at its e-car factory in Dresden due to a growing demand, the company says in a press release. Germany’s largest carmaker will increase production in Dresden from 36 to 72 e-Golf vehicles per day. Siegfrid Fiebig, regional manager of VW Saxony, says the increase in production will “prepare Volkswagen’s e-car offensive”, that will commence in 2020 based on a new, modular engine system.
